  1. Hi Chris, thank you for your podcast. Your application that we should obey Jesus, much like his mother says, is helpful. However, your comment on the miracle of water into wine being “silly” is unfortunate, because there is a larger truth here that is crucial to the entire gospel. The wedding banquet that Jesus attends is an earthly symbol of his Kingdom coming to earth, which is also a foretaste of the final wedding banquet in heaven. That is why John places this miracle as the first of the signs to emphasize that the Messiah is arriving. Jesus using jars previously used for ceremonial cleansing signals that the law is being fulfilled by His presence, which is a reason for joy and celebration.
